I've been to a million movie theaters and this one is my favorite. They redid it in the past few years and now it's all reserved seating - in HUGE lazy-boy chairs. You literally have 8 feet of space to yourself. And the cost isn't that much more than a regular ticket - but it's totally worth it. You'll never... More

This is for the movie theater and theater only. You get to pick your seats which are leather recliners. food prices are high, but what do you expect theaters have to make money. Tickets are the same as any other movie theater. We try to frequent this theater for first run movies only.

OK, there are 3 drawbacks to this theater: The seats are so comfortable you will want to sleep in them. They don't show all movies, since it's a small theater. And they don't serve booze. Otherwise, this is easily the only theater in the area actually worth the typical DC movie theater prices. Once you reserve seats online you won't... More

I like everything about this theater, the staff, the concession stand, the great reclining seats, and the use of Fandango to reserve seating.

I always hated the movies because I found the chairs to be uncomfortable much like an airplane. After going to a movie here I will never go anywhere else again! I love making the reservations so you don't even have to fight for a seat. Sometimes it sucks because all of the good seats are taken so you have to... More

My boyfriend and I first came to this theater in September 2013 to check out a movie during the weekday evening. When you purchase your tickets, you must select the seats you want to sit in (first time we ever experienced this). We found out the seats are recliners, which was great. What was a nice surprise is the theater... More

One of the first places in NoVa to have the nice reclining chairs so you are very comfortable while watching a movie. Enjoy the experience and you will probabaly come back. Membership with AMC leads to the free tickets and free drinks / food. Worth the visit and a short walk from court house metro. Free parking is available in... More

Been coming here for awhile. Used to be the shabbiest theater in the area, but with the lazyboy-style chairs/recliners, it's now the best there is. It's all reserved seating too, so you can pick your seat beforehand then head to the restaurant/bar and show up just before the movie starts instead of getting there early to get seats together. Located... More

Ever since they re-did this theater and added in these chairs I am unable to watch movies anywhere else. Go here...it is worth it. The chair is huge and it reclines. Cant beat that!

Be careful not to fall asleep in these huge comfortable chairs. They don't always have the movies I want, so I need to settle elsewhere, but if the movie I want to see is here, this is my first choice. Plus there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby for either pre or post movie visits.
